Beverly Hills, MI & Clarkston, MI
|Scott's family selfie while waiting for Debbie to prepare her shot|
I wanted to gather and present these portraits all in one place, so here they are. :-)
The day we arrived in Michigan from New York was a Sunday and Scott's mom had planned a family dinner to celebrate Scott's birthday, which fell on the following Tuesday, November 24th. After eating a delicious prime rib dinner lovingly prepared by Scott's mom, Denise, we assembled in the living room.
Debbie, who has a professional photography business, had decided to bring her camera and equipment along to snap some family portraits. Following much furniture moving, lighting adjustments and other preparations, here are the wonderful results.

We came prepared, armed with Scott's dad's point-and-shoot camera and tripod, which Scott set up in the living room before we sat down to eat. By the time we did a bunch of test shots with just my sister's family and then assembled everyone, the kids were about done, but we did manage to get a pretty good shot.
|Finally, a family portrait!|
